What is volunteering?
Volunteering is about giving your time, without being paid, to do something useful to help people or the environment. It’s a really rewarding activity that can help you get involved in the local community, meet people, develop your skills and even have some fun! Volunteer Centre Redbridge can help you find out more about groups, clubs and organisations that need your help.
Never volunteered before?
If you are new to volunteering and want to find out more before making a commitment, come to one of our free Introduction to Volunteering workshops. This is the perfect place to consider how volunteering would fit into your life, think about volunteers’ rights and responsibilities and find out how to look for volunteering opportunities.
Been a volunteer before?
If you have volunteered before, would like a new role and would like to discuss the types of role that match your skills, interests and availability, we can offer a confidential, one-to-one appointment with an advisor. We will discuss available roles with you and can refer you to opportunities that are a good match.
Volunteering can help you too
Volunteer Centre Redbridge is a member of the Work Redbridge Partnership and offers regular volunteering information sessions at Work Clubs and Opportunities Fairs organised by Work Redbridge.
Volunteering can be a valuable way, not just of giving your time and talents to a good cause, but also of gaining experience and references that may help you become more employable.
